  • Profile

    Created in 1970, the Maïko National Park covers almost 1,000,000 ha. It is located in the Ituri forest and the provinces of North Kivu and Maniema.

    In theory, it is home to three of the most spectacular endemic species in the country: the extremely rare okapi, lowland gorillas and the famous Congolese peacock found only at this location in the country, in addition to a population of elephants of forest, light-faced chimpanzees and buffaloes.

    Maïko Park is a hilly and difficult to access topography made up of a block of rain forest quite different from that of Salonga. It is a semi-mountainous forest with an average altitude of 1,200 meters. Rainfall is highest in the DRC
